Two antidepressants, venlafaxine and fluoxetine, were evaluated in vivo for their effect on cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) activity, measured by the ratio of dextromethorphan, a sensitive CYP2D6 marker, to its metabolite dextrorphan (i.e., DM:DT) excreted in urine after DM coadministration. Twenty-eight healthy extensive metabolizers of CYP2D6 received either(More)
Potential pharmacokinetic effects of venlafaxine on alprazolam, a substrate of the cytochrome pigment 450 (CYP) isoenzyme CYP3A4, were investigated in 16 healthy volunteers. A single 2-mg oral dose of alprazolam was combined with steady-state levels of venlafaxine administered orally at 75 mg twice daily. The levels of alprazolam in plasma and of(More)
The effect of steady-state venlafaxine administration on the single-dose pharmacokinetic profile of terfenadine, a cytochrome pigment (P450) isoenzyme CYP3A4 substrate, and its active acid metabolite (fexofenadine) was evaluated in an open-label, nonrandomized study. Twenty-six healthy subjects were given a 120-mg oral dose of terfenadine before and after(More)
An open-label study evaluated the effect of steady-state venlafaxine on the single-dose pharmacokinetic profile of risperidone, a CYP2D6 substrate; its active metabolite, 9-hydroxyrisperidone; and the total active moiety (risperidone plus 9-hydroxyrisperidone). Thirty healthy subjects received a 1 mg oral dose of risperidone before and after venlafaxine(More)
BACKGROUND Five-year survival rates among stage IIIA lung cancer patients range between 2% and 15%, and there is currently no consensus regarding optimal treatment approaches for these patients. The current investigation evaluated survival outcomes among stage IIIA lung cancer patients receiving 2 different treatment modalities, neoadjuvant chemotherapy(More)
Venlafaxine is a clinically effective antidepressant. Caffeine is a metabolic probe for the quantitative measurement of CYP1A2 activity in vivo. This open-label study evaluated the effect of steady-state venlafaxine on CYP1A2-dependent metabolism, as measured by the pharmacokinetic disposition of caffeine, and urinary caffeine metabolite ratios (CMRs).(More)
Objective Current lung cancer screening criteria based primarily on outcomes from the National Lung Screening Trial may not adequately capture all subgroups of the population at risk. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of lung cancer screening criteria recommended by the United States Preventive Services Task Force, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid(More)
